UPC is the only party that qualifies for the Soroti East Parliamentary seat – Amuriat

Pascal Amuriat the flag bearer for UPC in the upcoming Soroti East By-election has said that his party is the only one qualified to lead the area in the upcoming by election.

According to him, electing him will be the only way to save the area from bloodshed as both NRM and FDC groups look to be violent.

Amuriat further added that he expects this election to be free and fair. The winner announced will be a genuine one as all the Electoral Commission has to do is ensure free and fair elections.

“If any of the other two candidates (Moses Attan and Herbert Ariko) won the by-election, we would have bloodshed. UPC comes in peace. I come as a uniting figure in this by-election.

I don’t expect that there will be rigging. Whoever wins this race will have won genuinely. We just want the Electoral Commission to ensure that there’s no security interference,” said Amuriat.

Yesterday saw FDC top guns such as Dr Col Kiiza Besigye, Kampala lord mayor Erias Lukwago and FDC president Patrick Amuriat Oboi head to the district to canvas votes for their candidate Moses Attan.

NRM’S leader and President Yoweri Kaguta Museveni was also in the region canvassing votes for their candidate Herbert Ariko.

Museveni told the people that the NRM has proven itself over time that its the only party concerned about people’s welfare. Therefore they should vote Ariko for proper service delivery.

The election is going to happen on the 28th of July 2022. The main battle will be between FDC candidate Moses Attan against NRM’S Herbert Ariko.
